New Appointments to the New Zealand Racing Board

Racing Minister Nathan Guy has announced the appointment of Dr Alan Jackson, Greg McCarthy, Rod Croon, Graham Cooney and Alistair Ryan to the New Zealand Racing Board's (NZRB) governing body. Guy said the new appointments brought a valuable range of senior business, marketing and industry experience.

“I want to thank Chairman Michael Stiassny for his two terms of service, and the other outgoing members for their work. The three racing codes are now working more closely together and the new board must build on this good work.”

Dr Alan Jackson was appointed as independent Chairperson following consultation with the racing industry. Rod Croon was nominated by the harness racing code and Greg McCarthy by the thoroughbred racing code.

Independent board members Graham Cooney and Alistair Ryan were recommended by the statutory nomination advisory panel, following consultation with the industry.
